“Driver error” is what Fair Haven Police Chief Joe McGovern attributed to Tuesday’s post office accident that left a car in the lobby of the building at the River Road plaza. A similar such accident has happened before and next door.
While the chief said the accident that occurred at 6:19 p.m. that evening is still under investigation, he said that no summonses have been issued at this time.
The facts, so far, he said, are that an 89-year-old local woman “was pulling into the parking spot in front on the post office to mail a letter and accidentally hit the (car’s) accelerator instead of (the) brake.”
The car ended up completely inside the office, breaking out the entire front window and door, the chief said. As a result, there was no structural damage done to the building and “no one was injured, including the driver,” he added.
Fair Haven Police, Fire Company and First Aid responded to the scene.
The vehicle versus building accident has happened in the area and with frequency at one point a few years ago. The last time something similar occurred in the borough itself was about 15 or 20 years ago, the chief said he recalled, when a vehicle struck the building next door.

It’s a legacy that she’s forever striving to fulfill, on and off the dais.
Service to community is at the heart of family legacy for Sorensen. And, she said recently, she’s not anywhere near done fulfilling hers and continuing in her family’s without skipping a beat.Continue reading Living The Dream: Susan Sorensen’s Legacy of Heart for Home
